Where life really lives

On and off since I was a child I’ve enjoyed fishing. A gift from my father. It’s not something that I’ve ever done regularly (or expertly) and I’ve never endured the extremes of discomfort that some do. What I’ve always enjoyed about fishing is the sense of adventure with the application of a little skill … Continue reading

We are the media, not the journalists, not the cyber channels. We are the meaning makers. Be curious. Seek your truths. Change your minds. We are the experts, not the … Continue reading
